“That’s just life.” This phrase can be so frustrating. Not because it isn't true, but because it is. There are other statements like, “Life isn't fair” and “life is the greatest teacher” or my least favorite “Life Happens!” (I think we all know what that phrase actually means) Many days it feels like life is some unpleasant thing that happens to us. However, Jesus wants us to have “life to the full.” (John 10)
The truth is there are seasons; highs and lows in our life. Our spiritual life is often the same. We go through seasons. We have to learn how to grieve well and take courage, celebrate and grow. Sadly, in our humanity we are more prone to wallow in anxiety, fear, anger, depression, or worry, and then we hold what seems to be an empty life. But over every peak and through every valley, our joy can be full.
